, by cooperation. and by the way, after last night, i want a man who had the good sense to marry michelle obama. [ applause ] >> i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. now, folks, in tampa a few days ago, we heard a lot of talk, all about how the president and the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everybody to be dependent on the government, how bad we are for the economy. this republican narrative, its alternative universe says that every one of us in this room who amounts to anything, we're all completely self-made. one of the greatest chairmen the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every voter to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but as strauss then admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real opportunities for poor folks to work their way into it, where the relentless focus on the future with business and g

to president obama, they just didn't say very much about the ideas they've offered over the last two years. they couldn't. because they want to go back to the same old policies that got us in trouble in the first place. they want to cut taxes for higher income americans even more than president bush did, get rid of the pesky financial regulations designed to preven another crash and prohibit future bailouts. they want to increase defense spending over a decade, $2 trillion more, than the pentagon has requested, without saying what they'll spend it on. and they want to make enormous cuts in the rest of the budget, especially programs that help the middle class and poor children. as another president once said, there they go again. >> a lot of references in his speech, both subtle and direct, former republicanpresident, ronald reagan. president obama came out on stage. the two men shared a hug, a show of appreciation for a speech that may have gone a long way in helping obama's campaign. a lot to talk about. quick reactions from our panelists, in terms of the top takeaway for tonight? john?

think we are going to see a dramatically different rock obama -- barack obama if he wins, and specifically with regard to campaign finance reform. now he has said, and i got to play by the rules, because i cannot lose, but when i get in, i am going to fix this campaign finance issue, so what are your thoughts? >> i think my answer is the same, and that is that i do not know. now i do not think anyone knows. it is the obvious race between obama and romney, but it is the issue of campaigning, and we do not know who is going to end up in the white house if he wins reelection. there are differences between the two. obama campaigned as a leader, but he governs as a timid leader. you cannot be a transformational leader and not ruffle many feathers, and he understands that, and we have wasted a lot of pressures term, and if we go back to the original stimulus bill, if it had been better crafted, better targeted, larger, we would have perhaps not had ongoing erosion in terms of jobs that we have seen, so time matters comi-con when it comes to us it -- time matters when it comes t
michelle obama. chris matthews? >> certainly made the connection, don't you think? i mean, so much of tonight was interactive. it was between her and that audience in the room. i thought the camera work was so important watching this on television. you saw on the faces of men and women, black and white, all different backgrounds, the connection. she was with people. the emotional connection, telling the story of her love affair with her husband. with her life of getting ahead. but there was one big difference than four years ago which just came through in the earlier speeches tonight. it was hope and change, yes, hope and change but not hope and change imaginally overnight. but hope through work and patience and time and effort and then change. i think it was a much more mature look at their own lives as they got there. i'll tell you, i assume most americans watching tonight who have been lucky in this country, have gotten close to the american dream, have done it the way they did it. with student loans. with good parents who made them study. of being parents who make their kids st
obama, another good night for them. >> affable, effective, as a democrat, it doesn't get any better. i'm sitting here, i'm giddy, i mean, this is exactly what barack obama needed. mending fences, bringing people together, understanding the facts. and i liked the way president clinton talked about the universe the republicans have painted president obama in, that they are not in reality, they are not in the real world. he even used the word "hate," and i'm glad he addressed this tonight, because you have to understand the climate before you can have the healing, and he also talked about a dysfunctional washington saying it doesn't have to be a blood sport and documented the kinds of things that he worked on with republicans and really in a roundabout way, gave the country hope that we can get together and we should be and it's a responsibility for elected officials to get to the point where they can work together. so, and, of course, he talked about philosophy, which i think is important about owning your own, you know, philosophy of owning your own health care, owning your own retireme

has seen that both campaigns are trying to make the case. president obama is trying to say i'll create more jobs if i'm reelected and mitt romney is saying change course. >> reporter: we heard from a few folks on the listen to me project on what the most important issue was. here are voices from north carolina talking about jobs and economy. >> i think by far the most important issue is the economy. i think it with would turn around if there were more cooperation in washington. >> a lot of people don't have jobs and are losing their jobs and after being -- you know -- at jobs for years and they are shipping jobs overseas and everything like thank when we look at the unemployment -- everything like that. >> reporter: when we look at the map it's evenly distributed across the state. >> it's pretty bad every year. it's industries prevalent but declining over the last deck caismed when you look at the research try angle, technology companies moving in, people moving from other states that's one of areas where it's stronger. that's where the campaigns are focusing energy because we have mor
's certain to make a strong case for a second term for president obama. cnn's dana bash is learning details about what the former president has to say in his convention speech later tonight. dana, what are you picking up? >> well, i've talked to several officials who are familiar with what president clinton is going to talk about skematically. the whole idea, the whole reason why the obama campaign asked him to come here and to speak from that podium is because they want him to explain the economics behind his own administration and the parallels between that and what the obama administration is trying to do. now, of course, you remember, wolf, you were covering the clinton administration. and he did take -- this country into a time of surplus. so what he's going to do i'm told is explain how he did that. and show the similarities between his platform and his goals and what president obama is trying to do. the other thing i'm told he is going to do is "slam dunk" the romney agenda. specifically trickledown economics. the philosophy behind the romney agenda and many republicans agenda and ho
showed the world the truth promise of america when we elected president barack obama. [cheers and applause] and years ago, a man inspired by president obama's election decided to come forward. he came to our washington office and said, i'm one of the people who beat you. i want to apologize. will you forgive me? i said i accept your apology. he started crying. [applause] he gave me a hug. i hugged him back. we botyh starte -- we both started crying. this man and i don't want to go back. we don't want to go back. [cheers and applause] brothers and sisters, do you wanna go back? >> no! >> or do you want to keep america moving forward? >> yes! >> my dear friends, your vote is precious, almost sacred. it is the most powerful nonviolent tool we have to create a more perfect union. [cheers and applause] not too long ago, people had to pass -- pay a toll tax. a man was asked to carry the number of bubbles in a bar of soap. one was asked to count the -- all to keep them from casting their ballots. today, it is unbelievable that there are republican officials trying to stop some people
to do it. when president obama was elected, he had made a speech where he talked about america is part of the world, and he went to istanbul and cairo in his first year and talked about independence and the need to work together, and he was punished by the media and his own party, and the result is he talks mainly about america, we are number one, god bless america, and i do one god to bless america, but i want them to bless the whole world. the focus on the american exhibition where, first of all, every nation thinks it is exceptional. in switzerland, they talk about it, and in france, they talk about it that the french think similarly. and this does not mean that we are exceptional in the sense that we can solve problems by ourselves, that we can fix the things the way we did 100 years ago. thinking about immigration, there is nothing we can do. we cannot do that one nation at a time. even if we suddenly had all of the alternative energy and if we got off the petroleum teet and started using geothermal energy, 80% to 85% of the emissions come from other countries. we do these things
be no bump to get for either candidate, barack obama may not get one. barack obama also got some bad news today. an abc poll shows that like mitt romney, his unfavor ability rating now are higher than his favorable rating. so both of these candidates have got a little work to do. >> pinkston: thanks, bob. norah o'donnell, cohost of cbs this morning is down on the convention floor, norah. >> reporter: this crowd is shouting barack obama will move this country forward, not back. that is the big challenge for democrats this week. the president has got to win over a majority of americans who still disapprove of the way he is handling the economy. it's not just about convincing voters that the economy is getting better. he has got to address some of the real concerns, anxiety among middle class voters. and that's what first lady michelle obama is going to try to do tonight. >> pinkston: an michelle obama will be coming up portly but first the keynote address by the mayor of san antonio julian castro right after these messages. >> pelley: ,. [ male announcer ] here's a fun fact: this single sco
criticized for is not having a narrative. not telling us what's and obama presidency would be like. i do not think we have any link here between the circumstances, what he has done, and what he will do. that picture is not there. >> to be fair, i feel like we got a little more from barack obama that we get from mitt romney on what the next four years will look like but i do not have a good understanding. >> i am not sure mitt romney knows what he wants to do and if he does, i do not think he wants to say much because that is his nature. he does not want to be held with his feet to the fire. i was old disconcerted about the things that obama was promising. i did not understand how he was going to get there. 1 million manufacturing jobs. he is throwing out these things that we still have not seen any jobs and we're getting more numbers tomorrow. how is he going to do things that he is not doing for four years? where are these jobs coming from? >> it is a good point. i was thinking that when he was going through a laundry list trade will have energy expansion and manufacturing jobs, we will
to be done. >> tonight we heard from the star of the obama family. first lady michelle obama. this hour we will be showing you the big moments, the first speeches and we begin with the first lady. take a look. serving as your first lady is an honor and a privilege. but back when we first came together four years ago, i still had concerns about this journey we'd begun. while i believed deeply in my husband's vision for this country and i was certain he would make an extraordinary president, like any mother, i was worried about what it would mean for our girls if he got that chance. how would we keep them grounded under the glare of the national spotlight. how would they feel being uprooted from their school, their friends and the only home they had ever known. our life before moving to washington was filled with simple joys. saturdays at soccer games, sundays at grand's house and a date night was either dinner or a movie because as an exhausted mom, i couldn't stay awake for both. and the truth is, i loved the life we had built for our girls. and i deeply love the man i had built that life
